It was hard to expand on this riddle while maintaining the single rhymes, so it is much easier than expected to solve...Hopefully you enjoy the rhymes:

I give you some metal, and you steal my name!
I had to have known, I am only to blame.

Even when right I'm wrong, what a shame.
A sacrifice I make, to help in my claim.

I will waiver my rights, and steady my aim.
For my resistance is futile, within my time frame.

A quick easy answer can give you some fame.
So find what I am, and finish this game!

Is the answer

Male

I give you some metal, and you steal my name!

Fe (iron) + male = female. Can also refer to how after the man gives his woman a wedding ring, she takes his last name.

I had to have known, I am only to blame.

Women always blame men. Also, men often give precious metals to women like gold and silver. EDIT: Men are usually the ones to propose marriage.

Even when right I'm wrong, what a shame.

Women are always right! :P

A sacrifice I make, to help in my claim.

Men often let women win arguments to keep the relationship steady.

I will waiver my rights, and steady my aim.

Men get married and give up the merriment of their bachelor life.

For my resistance is futile, within my time frame.

Women keep pestering men to commit and get married. EDIT: Once they are married, there is no escape and trying to resist is not generally a good idea.

A quick easy answer can give you some fame.
So find what I am, and finish this game!

Can I haz some repz?

    $\begingroup$ @mmking, lets just say, someone has increased my family size recently [which is the source of 'inspiration' behind this riddle] :p $\endgroup$ – Mark N Jul 2 '15 at 19:00
  • $\begingroup$ 'I had to have known, I am only to blame.' Does this have something to do with the fact that men often pursue women? $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Jul 2 '15 at 19:03
